I remember these; most of them were disgusting: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/drinks-used-neck-were-younger-17338082

Not tried most of them, but I liked Hooch.

Most pubs refuse to serve snake-bite these days, but those in the know order the components seperately and mix them at their table.

I remember Oranjeboom Lager, that was quite nice.

I've never drunk it, but a lot of shops still sell it.

Not heard of it, but I'm not a lager drinker.

I've never tried it either - I've always been a real ale drinker.

...I've always been a real ale drinker.

Snap! One of my old workmates was at the first CAMRA AGM in Nuneaton. He taught me well. ;)

Beer's got a lot better since I started drinking. When I turned 18, the only 'beer' you could buy in pubs way Tetley's, John Smith's & Boddingtons. Now, in a lot of the better pubs, you can't move for decent beer.

One of my first drinks was Watney's Red Barrel. - I was likely underage at the time. I miss Ansells Bitter though.

Oddly enough, one of my more recent workmates is now CAMRA National director.
